I had some leftover cotton yarn, so I decided to make string ornaments with the kids!

Super easy....you blow up a balloon to the size of a fist (water balloons work perfect).

Mix 2 parts white glue to 1 part water.

Dip your string in the glue mixture and start wrapping around the balloon.

Dry for 24 hrs on wax paper.

Pop & remove the balloon and embellish as you wish.

**We placed bells in the balloons before we blew them up so the ornaments would jingle!

I made these once before, but not with the bells.  That's a great idea.  Yours looks very nice.
